Is This The List Of Upgrades For 2.7?

Why? Because true or not we think there are some good ideas on this list that Sony would do well to listen to.

Over on GameTrailers forums, a supposed "employee" of Sony's R&D department has apparently "leaked" the list of Firmware 2.7 updates.

View them after the jump.

Friends List:

  • Voice Messaging is now available as an alternative to text after selecting a user on the friends list. Voice message recordings are capped at 30 seconds.
  • Home Integration: Saved PlayStation Home avatar photos can be selected as photo ID for Gamer Card/Friends List.
  • Trophy number and Gamer Level are listed under Friend names for quick reference.

Gamer Card & Trophies:

  • Gamer Card layout has been changed to more closely resemble the PlayStation Store aesthetic.
  • Past Trophy information can be viewed in detail by selecting "Recent Trophy History" option.
  • Newly acquired trophies auto-sync in the background
  • Server infrastructure for Trophies has been optimized. Resulting in faster retrieval time for Gamer Card and Trophy information.

In-Game XMB:

  • Loading time for In-Game XMB has been drastically reduced, resulting in a more seamless in-game experience.
  • "Theme settings" options while in-game is now available, allowing custom themes to be applied to the In-Game XMB.
  • Internet Browser can now be accessed while in-game.
  • Voice messaging and voice chat options can be used while in-game.
  • Options that cannot be used in the XMB during game sessions are grayed out (but still selectable) to eliminate user accessibility confusion.

We've put the features we'd love Sony to take notice of in italics. Real R&D people, get a pen ready and take note.
